Mounting the Electronics

I made a start today on mounting the electronics like the speed controllers, Vex Micro controller, Fuse Block/Circuit Breaker, Power Distribution Board etc.

At first I was pretty sure I could fit everything on the plate I’d cut and mounted. I’d done some rough measurements a few weeks ago and it looked like everything would fit on one side.

But today I laid everything out and it’s just too tight, especially when you start wiring things up it’s going to get ugly fast.

I think I’m going to move the CF3 Sound Card and RF Remote to the back (inside) of the mounting plate.

    The Roboteq is the drive system speed controller and I got the breaker box on ebay. It uses Maxi fuses, but can accept circuit breakers too. Total with shipping was under $20 and it arrived within a few days.

    Seller is hw836 and do a search on his listings for “Fuse Block Maxi”
